What is skin rejuvenation with Ultrasound and Radio Frequency (RF)?
Ultrasound and radio frequency (RF) treatments in aesthetics are generally used for firming and tightening of the skin. There are various types of ultrasound and RF treatments available in Singapore that are non-invasive and have no downtime.
What is HIFU?
HIFU, or high intensity focused ultrasound, is a non-invasive treatment in Singapore used primarily for skin firming.
Lift and tighten saggy skin for face and neck
Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
Enhance jawline definition
Tighten the décolletage
Make skin more firm and supple
Brighten skin tone
HIFU uses focused ultrasound energy that targets the SMAS layer of skin. It heats up the skin tissues and stimulates collagen production to firm and lift the skin.
With a wide range of transducers, HIFU can accomplish different objectives by using different transducers to deliver energy to different depths of the skin.
HIFU for face and neck firming
This is a no downtime, non-surgical treatment to firm your face and neck. The focused ultrasound energy of this treatment penetrates the skin at depths of 4.5mm, 3.0mm, and 1.5mm to induce collagen production for skin firming and tightening.
HIFU for skin brightening
For skin brightening, HIFU targets ultrasound energy at 2mm under the surface of the skin in the area known as the dermis. This no downtime, non-invasive treatment contracts and blocks the capillaries in the skin to reduce flushing or redness of the skin and minimise the appearance of spider veins on the face.
What to expect during a HIFU treatment?
Patients will experience a prickling sensation under the skin, however, this sensation is well tolerated by most people. Patients may also feel a mild warm sensation on the treated area or a mild ache over the bony areas (e.g. jawline) during treatment.
What is Exilis Ultra 360 skin tightening treatment?
Exilis Ultra 360 is a non-invasive US FDA-approved treatment in Singapore that combines radio frequency (RF) and ultrasound for skin lifting and tightening.
It stimulates collagen and elastin regeneration to smooth fine lines and make the skin more supple.
How does Exilis Ultra 360 work?
Exilis Ultra 360 has a built-in, highly-controlled heat firming system that ensures the skin tissues are gently and carefully brought to 40-42°c, which is the optimum temperature needed to bring about a tightening effect.
The integrated cooling feature of the Exilis treatment device also allows us to deliver thermal energy to proper skin depth to achieve the desired results while ensuring a safe, comfortable experience.
Where can Exilis Ultra 360 treat?
Areas that can be treated include the forehead, eye area, cheeks, jawline, and neck.
Exilis is a treatment in Singapore that can also be used on your body to firm loose saggy skin that is a result of weight loss, ageing, or post-body contouring.
Eye Rejuvenation with Exilis Ultra 360
The Exilis Eye Rejuvenation treatment focuses on the undereye area and area surrounding the eye.
Loss of volume in the undereye area can lead to dark eye circles, which can occur due to the hollowed-out area under the eyes. By stimulating collagen growth, Exilis Eye Rejuvenation reduces the appearance of dark eye circles and fine lines around the eyes.
What to expect during Exilis Ultra 360 skin tightening treatment?
Facial oil is applied on the skin before applying the Exilis applicator on the treatment area in a circular motion.
The temperature is closely monitored by the therapist and while our skin may turn red during treatment, it will cool down and return to normal after treatment.
